Publisher's Summary

When mathematics PhD candidate Anjan Sundaram decided to leave Yale University for the Congo and journalism, it didn’t seem the best career move. But a stringer gig from the Associated Press gave him a job and the opportunity to immerse himself in this often overlooked society. Sundaram’s debut book is Stringer: A Reporter’s Journey in the Congo.

Then, John Wood left his job as an executive at Microsoft to start Room to Read, a nonprofit that builds libraries and schools in the developing world. The program is run on a business model as opposed to a traditional not-for-profit, and Wood joins Bob to explain why it works. Wood is the author of Creating Room to Read: A Story of Hope in the Battle for Global Literacy. [Broadcast Date: January 28, 2014]
